Cagers just suck these days. No skills, no concern, no nothing. Just zombies operating dangerous equipment. I expect there to be an attempt on my life me every time I ride. If it's worth it, you may want to look into determining whether or not the cager was texting or talking on the phone. That could change who pays who and how much.

Most importantly, I'm glad you are OK and not really messed up.

Such a bummer... and as everyone has said glad to hear you're ok. Bikes are replaceable. You had it nicely fitted with a lot of aftermarket bits and pieces. I would def try to buy it back if you can, maybe the bike will be repairable or at least you will have some of them bits for your next project.

If I'm not riding my bike I'm flying my kite....

That sucks pretty hard. At least you did not get too much of a beating.
I had a car change lanes into me while I was in my car. Trying to leave a stoplight.
Some drivers are as good as blind.

Sorry to hear about the accident, Mike. Main thing is that it sounds like you are, for the most part, okay. As folks are saying- definitely get yourself checked. Yes, things can show up later. Some good advice about not signing anything too.
Really sucks, but again, glad you are able to write about it. Keep us posted.

Looks like 24 at EB 680? If so, yeah, that's shitty. I've seen tons of near accidents there.....and I don't even go that way very often.

I got merged into on 680 near Gold Hill Road about 18 years ago. Only time I've ever been in an accident on my bike that involved a car.

Glad you're okay. If needed, get an attorney. Don't let the insurance company (yours or theirs) shaft you. There are a couple of them in The City who specialize in motorcycle accidents for the benefit of the rider...........sean

Hi Mike,

I don't know what to say, I know how much love you had put into that bike. What a bummer. I suppose that to look on the bright side, it could have been worse. I hope that you recover ok; let us know how you get on.

That's not good. In fact, that really sucks.

Glad to hear you're not banged up real bad. Let us know you're ok a day or two from know.

Sorry about your bike. Hope you are able to get it sorted out and you can get back to riding again soon.

As far as California goes if the car merged into you, they should carry all the liability, but insurance people are shady and will do whatever they can to squeeze money out of you.

Also depends on how the cop wrote the report and if they cited the cager with a vehicle code infraction.

Hopefully they cover a new one and you can steal the good bits off the one you got now.

Find a hot tub, you're gonna be sore today as bunch of people have already pointed out.

Wow, glad the you are relatively ok. Suggest that you contact a lawyer ASAP just to get some specifics related to California law. Believe me, I got run off the road and dealing with the insurance companies can be a royal PITA.
